I took a visit to the National Museum of Thailand in Bangkok last week, on the way there I met two Swedish guys who decided to tag allow and follow me there. When we were looking around the galleries one of the guys asked if I knew much about this kind of art, and it occurred to me that despite having a pretty decent knowledge of art history from the ancient Greeks and Romans through to the modern and contemporary art of today, that I actually didn’t really know much at all about the art that I was seeing. It’s something that sadly seems to slip western education at least certainty from my own experience.
I lived in various cities when I was in Australia including Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, each had there own merits but it was the colourful art scene of Melbourne that I loved most.
Here are some shots during my time traveling through Australia, these photos were taken during my time camping in Tabulam NSW, and while traveling along the East Coast.
I’m just back from a recent trip to Italy with a good friend of mine. We began off in the capital, the wonderful city that of Rome, then took a train up to Florence, the heart of what was Renaissance Italy. During our time there we had the pleasure of visiting several museums as well as a look at the Angel art academy from a friend of mine currently studying there.
Here’s a list to some of the museums you can find in Rome and Florence;
